Not wanting to miss out on socializing in order to check for insects, I moved the sheet set-up closer to the edge of our evening hangout. Our camp clearing is at least 50 ft around at the base of a hill and within 15 ft of Rocky Creek. It wasn't ideal considering our camping lanterns competed with light output, but the access for our fellow campers was great. I experimented a little by placing the light a foot away from the sheet and resting it against the sheet. It really didn't seem to make much difference. I got a little more variety of moths and opiliones in this location, but there still wasn't very much activity. I suspect if there were a lot, my fellow campers may have freaked out. All in all it was casual fun, and I think I might do it again.
